I don't know about that...he was an Eagle 4 years ago as the backup, and he knew he wasn't going to have any shot of starting over McNabb. I think at his age, he has to know he's nothing more than a backup.

He didnt want to develop the young QB's in Tampa, they cut him, he went to Oakland, didnt want to help develop Russell they cut him.... yeah and even when he was in Philly he wanted to start. Him and McNabb were not buddies.

OK, well there's still got to be better options out there than the puppy killer. I'd go with Feeley, plus Feeley always played well in Reid's offense.

Oh puhleeeaassee. You have to love these guys that think they were inside the locker room everyday. Didn't Garcia say he wanted to stay in Philly (even if it meant being a backup and taking a paycut).

All I can say is thank God for the Phillies and that baseball season is starting....maybe Lurie, Banner, and Reid need to look across the street to see how a team should be run.

It happened to Wilt, Barkley, Dick Allen, BDawk, and now it's McNabb - great Philly superstars run out of town. I have mixed feelings on this -McNabb is the greatest Eagle QB ever, but he didn't win the big one. Part of that is on him, but more of that is on Reid. He's the one who should be out of there.

Reid is also the winningest coach and best evaluator of talent the Eagles have ever had? Why should he be axxed?

My friend you are always such a voice of reason.

Just go back to "The Nest"....forget these other threads. Don't bother wasting your time answering this bunk anymore. See you over there.
